Papeete, French Polynesia

Papeete ©
The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Fautaua, Tahitikun and Tahiti Lagoon Paradise. Musee de la perle et Bijouterie and Museum of Tahiti and the Islands are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art and Notre Dame Cathedral. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market, identify plant and animal life at Natura Exploration, enjoy the sand and surf at Punaauia Beach, and ponder the world of politics at Assemblee De La Polynesie Francaise.
